Default Why the US is better than the UK

LIGHT HEARTED!!!!

Okay so tell me what I'm missing.

I know about the Weather and fuel prices. I'm not into sport.

I'll go for the cost and choise when eating out.

Why the USA is better than the UK? OK, not to sound adversarial BUT...
The USA kicked the UK's ass in the revolutionary war, then the USA kicked the UK's ass in the war of 1812; THEN the USA bailed out the UK during world war 1, then the USA bailed out the UK in world war 2...
Now if those things don't prove not only that we can (and have) kick your ass AND the good ol' USA is also the best friend the UK ever had, I don't know what does.
I'll hoist a pint to the UK and the USA anytime!

Beef and Las Vegas.

Beer?

I like warm flat beer.

I think I'm better here.
Beef? I don't like growth hormones.

Next.

That being said. I'd love to try plenty of the beers and beef.

There is far more cask ale in the US than there is interesting beer other than cask ale in the UK.

We have fixed interest mortgages.

honestly I don't know what the UK has to offer, I like Top Gear so you must have nice cars over there, although we have the same ones hear, just cost more and not that I have one or anything.

As far as beer goes, I perfer the west coast style beers, probably because that is what I have spent my introduction to good beer lessons with. Oh and we do have cask beer here too, mmm.... jubelale on cask....
